TRYING TO GET OUT

by December 19, 2019 0 comments

There’s rain
in the desert
where lizards
and one-eyed dogs
live
on the
wrong side of the
tracks
and bars with
tired neons
blink onto
cactus and sand
where nothing
comes alive
except
lightning and
dry winds
as we try for the
right way
leaving behind
what tries to
hold us back
in the desert
where even the
water has no place
to go.
